THE first residents to move into St Congar’s Place in Congresbury had just unpacked when their baby decided to come early on Christmas Eve.

Hannah, 34, and Ian, 33, moved to their new home at the end of November with their two-year-old son Louie, with another child on the way.

Hannah said: “I was pregnant with our second child, who wasn’t due until January, so we thought we had plenty of time to unpack, prepare for Christmas and settle into our new home.

“However, our baby had other ideas and arrived early on Christmas Eve!

“Louie now has a gorgeous younger brother – Arthur, or Artie for short. We can’t believe how lucky we are that we moved in time.”

Hannah and Ian bought the four bedroom Chestnut home using Home Exchange, which meant Bovis Homes bought their home so they could move without a chain.

Hannah said: “Everything went seamlessly with Home Exchange, it was a brilliant move for us – especially as I was expecting. It took a lot of the worry and stress away. We learnt the new owners, that Bovis sold to, only moved to our old home in February. We were very lucky to have used Home Exchange or we’d have had to pack and move with a two-month-old!”

Head of sales Natasha Palmer said: “St Congar’s Place is proving to be very popular.

“Not only is it in a stunning location – near glorious countryside and just a short drive from the city of Bristol – but there’s a great range of properties available for families and couples to make their forever home.”

The development will provide 50 energy efficient three, four and five bedroom homes, a play park, a trim trail and a grazing pasture, off Wrington Lane.

The local community will benefit from St Congar’s Place support, as they are contributing over £213,000 towards primary education, special educational needs and disability services, transport for secondary education, sports and leisure, local sports pitches, traffic management, a youth education contribution towards Congresbury Youth Centre and a local travel plan.

There are currently three and four bedroom homes available from £439,995. For more
